I come from mech background dad was a service manager till he died in 99 now I'm finding out just how important it was to pay attention to what he taught.auto repair is invaluable and expensive.

Question Asked: Door hinge??

How difficult is it to adjust a door,as mine doesn't close properly and I have to put inward pressure to open door as I'm afraid its going to break the locking mechanism.door hasn't been slammed I'm very particular.It started the day after I had electric window regulator replaced.I had to take it back cause window was binding after new install,they stated it was nothing to do with their work.Of course.It's as if someone leaned across my door putting excess weight on it.It's one thing after another since I've lost my real mechanic and have to deal with so called aaa rated shops.As I said I'm particular,not petty and I'm not giving these people counterfeit money.Boggles my mind.

Question Asked: r&r 1 outer tierod now tires are towed out and when I hit bumps vehicle floats
April 12, 2014, 12:01 PM
all over the road.does'nt appear to be visible damage to other steering components.tires are towed outward and I hear clicking noise when turning or going over small bumps.I know I need to have f/e alignment just trying to figure out if I need to replace something else before having it done.
